  1. Hi I posted in the intro/welcome forum also.. I'm on day 6 and surprised to have my chronic acid reflux / GERD that I was hoping to address in 'reintroduction' as to which foods were triggering. Right now I just have a sore throat and chest congestion, but can feel the cough coming on which is really horrible, keeps me up all night with the coughing attacks, etc. I also have been having low energy, constipation, and bloating. I'm wondering if there are some logical answers to this? Like perhaps, I'm detoxing from a diet heavy in sugar and had gotten away from my healthy habits, so now my body is trying to get rid of some of those reserves? I'm staying with it and feeling positive and hopeful, but man I feel crummy!! Bethany
  2. Hello Whole30 Nation! I would love to be active here, as I don't have anyone IRL that I'm doing my challenge with. I was actually on a first date who told me about how he loves the whole30, had heard about it before- and really was looking for something like this, so got the books and started a few days later! I am normally pretty healthy with diet and exercise, however it has gotten a bit out of hand in the past year or so. I chose to take the challenge for three main reasons: 1. address and break the sugar addiction that was getting out of control 2. see if I can find a solution for some troubling chronic physical ailments such as acid reflux / GERD causing a horrible cough; and constipation 3. reset my healthy eating habits and get back to my ideal weight. I know its still early- however I have completed a week of eating according to the plan and thought I would share one positive and one negative: POSITIVE: I have been surprised that I'm not hungry or craving sugar, almost from the very beginning. My sugar cravings were so strong before, and I seem to be completely satisfied by the meals that I don't even want to snack/eat dessert which SHOCKS me. NEGATIVE: the GERD cough and constipation immediately flared up badly. Also, I've been extremely low energy and don't feel like exercising at all, hard to get out of bed, etc. I'm extremely bloated and feel heavier than when I started. Does anyone else have the experience of low energy at the beginning, have constipation/bloating, and/or trigger your chronic ailments you were hoping to get rid of? And great to be here, I'm still excited about the program just wondering if anyone has any ideas why I'm experiencing this. Thanks! Bethany

    constipation

    I'm on day 4, and for some reason have not had one bowel movement since starting the program! Which seems very weird - I'm usually extremely regular (every single morning like clockwork and occasionally throughout the day as well). However- I've been having occasional constipation leading up to this, which was one of the reasons I chose to take the challenge. Apologies if this is already a topic, I honestly could not figure out how to search the topics here. Main questions: 1. any tips on getting things moving 2. would you advise taking a gentle, natural laxative tea such as 'Smooth Move' ? I generally hate resorting to that since it causes painful stomach cramps, but things are getting desperate. 3. could this be contributing to my very low energy?

    Constipated!

    I got a gastric sleeve 4 years ago. I got down to 165, but stress and old bored eating habits flared up and I was back to 198. I'm on day 18 of W30. But I am NOT regular. I have been constantly constipated through the last 2 weeks. Please help! What am I doing wrong?

    Day 10, second W30

    Hi all, I'm a new forum-er but not completely new to W30. I'm on Day 10 of my second W30. I'll cut to the chase...I know this is particularly common, but I'm looking for some relief here from some symptoms I'm having. Non-W30, I eat pretty paleo-ish + wine on the weekends. We have four young kids, I mean, come on. But I am SO bloated and constipated on day 10. I've only had one decent (complete) BM since starting this W30. Even my three year old said, "Mommy, you have a big tummy", and I'm a ladies size 4! Also had lots of dull headaches, body aches, feeling arthritis in my hands and sometimes knees. I took an epsom salt hot bath last night after a good run yesterday and today seems even worse, maybe more detox from the bath? I'm staying completely on plan, drinking lots of water (some of it sparkling), and coffee in the am. I do eat more Rx bars than I'd like to admit but as of today I'll do my best to cut those too. My job is on call and sometimes I do need to swing into somewhere quickly and pick up a Rx bar. (I help women have babies for a living- crazy schedule.) We eat eggs in ghee and sauerkraut for breakfast, a W30 slow cooker chicken meal for lunch, and a Territory Whole 30 meal we order for dinner. I have kombucha sometimes too. Anyways, any thoughts? I'm also taking a probiotic and went to take a digestive enzyme today but realized it had Xylitol in it so I'll have to go get a new brand... Am I allowed to do an enema? Not sure that would even work...
